I am a GP.
I am also a normal human being:
– Mother of 2 boys aged 3 and 1.
– I have a chronic disease.
– I am also an amateur musician and enjoy gardening and photography.
There are struggles with both aspects; and this makes me who I am and each side affects the other.
I started writing this blog as a result of being ‘broken;’ things feel overwhelming and chaotic yet empty. I was finding it difficult to talk, but easy to write.
I am now gradually developing the site more widely; other aspects of ‘GP and Humanity.’ I intend it to be a resource for anyone who has an interest in the subject matter. This will be through sharing links to established medical resources, non-medical information and obviously my blogs which are, of course, my own subjective thoughts and should only be viewed as such.
My personal motto that I’ve carried for many years:
‘In every negative experience, there is a positive and something to learn.’
All opinions expressed are my own and do not reflect the views of anyone else, including my employer. I hope my blogs and writing will be helpful to others but it is not intended to replace individualised proper medical assessment and advice.
